Q. Can I be terminated and denied my retirement if I decide to use all of my sick time (400+ hours) while waiting for my retirement package to go through? A very stressful situation arose before a day off and I do not wish to return to work at the Postal Service. I am under FERS. I have 10 years with the Postal Service in Cleveland as an electronic tech and 7½ years of credited military service.
